Mother's Day Stars From Verve

Well, it's been a crazy week, to say the least.  American Idol alone almost sent me over the edge.  I wanted the final two to be Candice and Angie.  It took me a day to recover from that, so I'm sorry I've been a little quiet (can't wait 'til next week's finale--Go Candice!).  So Happy Mother's Day, before I forget!  I hope all you mommies out there get to enjoy a little bit of peace and quiet today, or if that's not your thing, I can send my girls over.

I've had this card using Verve Stamps made and sitting on my computer printer for a while now (that's where they go when they are waiting to be blogged).  It sat there and sat there, reminding me to show it to ya'll, so here I am, watching a UEFA Champions League Soccer match on TV and writing this post (finally!  And yes, I like watching soccer on TV--a little known fact about me!).  Anyway, I thought this card would be a sweet project to share for Mother's Day.  The Viva la Verve sketch I followed (HERE) was current at the time I made it, I promise!  It's a great sketch that I plan to use again.  I used the "newish" Shining Star stamp set, the Starry Dies (I love the little stars on top of the big one here), along with the fun Calendar Countdown set from Verve.  Oh, the ideas I have for this set!...just never enough time in the day after all the cooking, cleaning, laundry, and American Idol.  It's a tough job, being a mom.  High fives to us all!!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  I love the look of a star layered under a main image.  Of course the sketch didn't call for it, but it was a no-brainer to add it as a layer.  It's a good "try it on for size" style tip for ya'll.  Your welcome.
